Baku, Azerbaijan, July 17


Opposition political activists David Sanasaryan and Andreas Ghukasyan were detained at the Liberty Square in Yerevan, according to Armenian Report.

The activists tried to organize a rally with the participation of several people, but they were taken to police stations.

Armed men seized a police station and hostages in Armenia's capital Yerevan on Sunday, demanding Armenians take to the streets to press their demands for the release of opposition politicians they said had been jailed unfairly.
